After the extremely successful preliminary round, the German national team started the main round of the Handball World Championship. The DHB selection meets Argentina on Thursday evening. This overview shows where you can follow the game.
The Handball World Championship has been running in Sweden and Poland since Wednesday, January 11th. The German national team has done very well so far in the preliminary round with victories against Qatar, Serbia and Algeria. Argentina is now waiting for the DHB selection. The opening game of the main round will be broadcast on ARD from 6 p.m.
As in previous years, the German fans have to sign a paid offer for this World Cup. If you want to follow all 112 games, you can’t avoid a tournament pass from the “sportdeutschland.tv” streaming service. The offer costs a one-off fee of 15 euros and includes over 80 exclusive games.
Handball World Cup: ARD presenter Bommes is out of health
Above all, the performances of the German national team will be shown on free TV. The public broadcasters ARD and ZDF share the rights. The two preliminary round games against Qatar and Algeria were broadcast on ZDF. Should the team also reach the quarterfinals and finals, the encounters would also be broadcast on ZDF. The first showed the second German group game against Serbia. Added to this are the two games in the main round and a semi-final if the German team manages to make it into the Final Four.
Stephanie Müller-Spirra will moderate the ARD. Former world champion Dominik Klein is once again at her side as an expert. The longtime moderator Alexander Bommes canceled his planned assignment for health reasons. Katrin Müller-Hohenstein leads through the program on ZDF. Ex-world champion Markus Baur sits at her side.
